1996 k1500 5.7 vortec 4x4 died while driving now won't start.

Asked by Jan 21, 2015 at 02:09 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving to work and truck just died.
Like it was out of gas but still had
3/4 of a tank. Opened  hood and
even tried putting a little gas in carb
to see if it was a fuel problem and it
would even start that way. It turns
over but just won't start. The
distributor  cap and rotor was just
replaced 2 months ago. Could it be
the distributor  module  is bad?  and
would that just make it die out of no
where like that?
